Continuing to build on this legacy, Ian Schrager expands his global influence with the opening of his first hotel in China. The Sanya EDITION, a spectacular oceanfront destination on Hainan Island, just off the coast of Southern China, is the latest addition to EDITION hotels, the brand Ian Schrager conceived in a partnership with Marriott International.

The resort is a unique sophisticated vision and embodiment of a cosmopolitan China for all the world to see." In ancient times, Sanya was known as "the end of the sky and ocean." The Sanya EDTION embraces this concept by responding to China's ever-changing landscape and introduces travelers to a new kind of luxury hotel experience. Centrally located in Haitang Bay, The Sanya EDITION is set within 50 acres of meticulously landscaped lush tropical greenery. Featuring a striking 20,000 m 2 private ocean overlooking the South China Sea. The Sanya EDITION was designed for people of all ages, which is a delicate balancing act. The fundamental idea behind this resort was to divide the property into different specialized zones that overlap with each other but simultaneously retain their own unique identities. The zones include water, fun, sports, kids, adult, family, eating, nightlife, entertainment, sensory and relaxation. They are magical in their interaction while the total experience becomes more than the sum of the individual parts. This makes for an incredibly unique one-of-a-kind experience unlike anything else.
